I'm requesting my grandfather's birth certificate from Italy. I hear the process can be sped up if one supplies postage. How does one do this? I'd appreciate any advice.

You can obtain an international reply coupon from your local post office (cost $1.75).

Also include a self address return envelope & write request in Italian.

Suggest getting birth act or extract, not the certificate. Act/extract will provide more info.

hope this helps.
